What is #NatureForAll?
#NatureForAll is a global movement to inspire love of nature. At its core is a very simple idea: the more people experience and share their love of nature, the more support and action there will be for its conservation. The growing knowledge base that links connecting with and caring for nature is an important part of #NatureForAll. Learn more here.
#NatureForAll was formally launched on September 2nd at the 2016 International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN; the world’s oldest and largest environmental conservation organisation) World Conservation Congress in Hawai’i. Since then, #NatureForAll partners have been demonstrating the many exciting ways that we can come together and inspire love of nature.
What does #NatureForAll do?
#NatureForAll was created to help grow the important work each of its partners undertakes to connect people and nature exponentially. Rather than providing a “one size fits all” solution, #NatureForAll aims to foster enabling environments to reduce barriers and connect people with nature in different regions, contexts and realities. Through partnership, we share knowledge, strategies, and actions - amplifying our collective reach and impact to engage new audiences to connect with and fall in love with nature. #NatureForAll resources are free for all to use!
How can I get involved?
The #NatureForAll Take Action Toolkit offers three simple ways that you can inspire love, support and action for nature worldwide!
Inspire people to connect with nature by sharing your story.
Invite a friend and/or an organisation to the #NatureForAll movement.
Team up with another individual and/or organisation(s) to collaborate on a project.
What are the priorities of the #NatureForAll network of partners?
#NatureForAll partners are showing how personal experiences and connections with nature provide powerful benefits for individual and societal health, well-being, and resilience and are a foundation for lifelong support for conservation. The #NatureForAll Playbook outlines seven strategies that have been developed to help partners do our work better. They will continue to evolve over time. Not every strategy may be applicable in every situation, so choose the one(s) that work best for you in your local context.
Bring children into nature at an early age.
Find and share the fun in nature.
Use urban gateways to nature.
Share cultural roots and ancestry in nature.
